What are other people doing for their divorce parties?

I was recently interviewed for an article in The Globe and Mail, titled Breakup blowouts: How the divorce party is coming on strong for young divorcées. The reporter did a pretty thorough look at what could constitute a divorce party, ending on the fact that they’re personal celebrations or ways to mark that you’re moving on (“Divorce parties are ultimately as individual as the marriages themselves.”). It’s worth a read if you’re curious as to what some other people have done or plan to do to mark their divorces.

One thing that intrigued me was the marathon runner. She took up running after the breakup, and why not? Many people go to the gym and go on “breakup diets,” and though I wouldn’t want to recommend that, picking up a healthy sport sounds like a positive thing to do for yourself to celebrate your new life.
